I try to avoid the cooking/food related plays-on-words as much as possible, since I think they're way too overused in food writing. But it can often seem unavoidable.
But take a look at this article in The Towerlight, which bills itself as "Baltimore's #1 College Paper."
The article, titled "Baltimore's 'Ace' Is a Piece of Cake," should theoretically describe some sort of aspect of the show that is easy, since "piece of cake" means "not difficult." However, the article's writer (bless her heart) never quite gets around to explaining the reason for the title-- other than it being a handy play-on-words that happens to have a word in common with the show's title.
In my book, that's not close enough.
Close... but no cigar.
